Hyvolution, the high-profile event in France devoted to hydrogen, will take place on the 4th and 5th of April at the Parc Floral in Paris. This event will bring together Fuel Cell field stakeholders and professionals across Europe.

Faurecia will exhibit on STELIA Aerospace Composites’s booth the High pressure hydrogen storage system prototype, result of the cooperation between the 2 companies.

The long-term benefits of the Fuel Cell are highly recognized by Faurecia. Ways are explored to improve and industrialize fuel cell technology for the automotive industry by optimizing the high pressure tank and delivery of hydrogen to the stack.

Partnering with STELIA Aerospace Composites, Faurecia is developing lightweight and cost effective storage for 700 bar hydrogen for fuel cell electric vehicle.

Fuel cell technology is a long term electric vehicle solution which offers increased autonomy (over 500 km) and quicker refueling time compared to battery electric vehicles. By 2035, Faurecia estimates that 5 million vehicles equipped with fuel cell technology could be in production. Carbon fiber composite is the ideal material for hydrogen tanks which have to withstand the high pressure (700bar) whilst being as light as possible.

Come and see us on booth N°18 –
